Winc is a company operating in both Australian and as well as New Zealand. They provide many businesses across these countries with office essentials for example:
IT solutions and,
much more in way of office supplies.
In 2017, Staples Australia and New Zealand rebranded as Winc. The name Winc is derived from the term 'work incorporated'. Since then, Winc then went on to merge with well known brand OfficeMax.
The OfficeMax warehouse in WA is located in Perth Airport, Western Australia. As part of the merge this warehouse was to transition into the Winc branding. Within the warehouse was the racking set up and structure used by OfficeMax. Consequently with plans of expanding this meant that Winc could not sustain the operations from the current set up with growth in mind.
The challenge on racking suppliers in the industry was to design a solution that catered to the current as well as future needs. Utilising the current racking structure and adding in further racking to an additional warehouse room.
In the early months of 2019, Winc gained the access into the OfficeMax building. The warehouse facility is over 21,000 sqm. The warehouse also includes zones for an office, operational areas and also picking stations. After that, the operations department of Winc planned to get the warehouse changes and pallet racking installation underway not long after acquisition of the building.
